The mood: Brunello Cucinelli goes for dandy in the digital era, presenting modern takes on classic British patterns (using the designer’s signature Italian tailoring, of course). But there was an informal touch here: a darker color palette and menswear influences made for a cool, youthful collection.
The shoes: Cozy fur accents appeared in many forms. Suede slip-on sneakers had an extra thick rubber sole with fur kiltie detail. Ankle-strap sandals in two-tone leather had a fur toe strap. High-shine metallics included pointy metallic loafers with lug sole, or shimmering tassels added onto the laces of leather sneakers. A punkier message also proved to be a surprising touch for the brand: we saw slouchy leather biker boots and all-black loafers with a thick platform wedge.
The review: Keeping its luxe materials and fabrications in tact, Cucinelli managed to tap into seasonal trends without straying too far from its classic customer. And with many avid sneakerheads being a fan of the brand, we predict you’ll being seeing some of these styles on the streets come next season.
